I am so excited to finally share our completed kitchen renovation! We managed to get everything finished in time for our big family Christmas and I’ve just taken my time taking photos and getting my notes organized.
Do you remember what our kitchen looked like before the One Room Challenge?
And today? BAM!
Some people thought I was nuts when I talked about painting our upper and lower cabinets different colours but I am so happy with how they turned out. The colours complement our floor tiles & countertops perfectly.
Raising the cabinets to the ceiling has also been great – although none of us can actually reach the top shelves, I love having the open shelves below for things we always want on hand like tea, sugar and mixing bowls.
The decision to replace one of our cabinets with open shelves? SO HAPPY! I hated that stupid cabinet – it was crammed in the corner and stuff just got lost it in it. The floating shelves give us a nice area to have some things on display and are a good home for favourite cookbooks.
And yes, this was a completely DIY project! Including our LED under shelf lighting and new light fixtures!
Can you spot which door we had to cut a 2” slice from?
Nope, and I’m not telling 😉
My favourite part? Honestly, I’m not sure that I could choose. Maybe our new Moen MotionSense faucet that happens to perfectly match our light fixtures:
Or the pull out pantry unit next to the fridge?
I don’t think I can choose! Were we nuts to do a kitchen renovation for a One Room Challenge? Maybe. But all I know is after this I am never moving – or if I do, I’m bringing this kitchen with me!
